enough that he could pay my way through college. >> i did the same thing for law school right through the stock market, was able to pay back everybody. >> if the president's re-elected, what are the chances that the american business community will think anew about him and be happy that he's re-elected and happy about -- and have confidence that he knows how to be a good pro-business? >> the answer would be because he goes to congress and comes up with a deal. if he comes up with a deal so we have some certainty about what our taxes are going to be and that there won't be massive layoffs from the federal government, he will be hailed as a hero because that's what people talk about, will it be oil or gas or clothing, apparel, retail. these retail executives say we are not getting the sales we'd like because everybody is worried about getting laid off because of this fiscal cliff. it's in the mindset. the president solved it, bingo. >> you just said the word. if i boil down the past four years of economic hardship why we're stalled from every businessperson i talk to at every level, fro
. >> you don't have the right in this country, according to the laws of our land. >> that's incorrect. >> you don't have the right to endorse a candidate in church. >> no, it's never been taken to court. for 58 years they've been trying to provoke it to court to see if it's constitutional or not. it's not gotten there. there have been many, many attempts. if it's all that unconstitutional, let's get it to court and decide. the pastor should be able to speak on biblic al topics. freedom of religion and freedom of speech. >> if you feel so strongly that your political voice should be heard, why not give up your tax exempt status? why challenge the irs this way? >> well, take that up with thomas jeffersonnd benjamin franklin. they said there should be true separation of church and state. that means that would include such a thing as tax exemption. supreme court would later say if the government can tax a church, it can control it and manipulate it. most people would not want their pastors to be controlled and manipulated by the state even in the arena of speech restriction as well. that'
. there are also new taxes going into effect as part of the cliff from the health care law. so it's a whole potpourri of stuff that's whacking you. >> not only the amounts but now how you make your money, right? wages and interest income, that goes up about 5%. capital gains goes up 7%. dividends that goes up 20%. so this is going to discourage people from investing in the markets if are going to be taxed like all this? >> i don't know. there is an argument that people could be discouraged from vesting. that's an argument that republicans are making. but there's also an argument you could see a huge pullout from the market as people try to take advantage of the lower rates before they go up. so i think the scarier part of it is, do people just sell in december and november anticipating that they'd better take their profits now when they can get the lower rate. >> can i ask you, why didn't congress stick around to try to get this worked out? >> they can't. that's what the election is about. while we're talking about the fiscal cliff, i prefer the more evocative term taxmageddon. we're having
